    I haven't called ASUS customer service yet and am not sure I'm going to.
    I recommend this netbook to anyone who wants a small, light machine with good performance with a long battery life.
    C. Closmann
    I would recommend that anyone who buys a netbook remove as much of the installed software as they can.

    I purchased this little computer about a week ago and so far it has been great. So far I have not found anything to complain about with the computer so I will list a few of the things I like:

    - Even with the extended capacity battery, the computer is very light and portable
    - The battery life is great! My daughter watched movies for almost 8 hours on our plane ride home without a hitch or stutter. After being in use for nearly the entire flight, it still had 35% of the battery remaining. Another note on the battery, in the earlier 1005 netbooks, the battery would stick out past the screen on the rear of the netbook. That is no longer the case, on the 1005PE it is flush with the rear of the netbook.
    - The keyboard is nice and decent size. I almost bought a Toshiba solely because I did not like the keyboard on the 1005HA version of this machine. Asus changed the keyboard on this model to a chiclet keyboard which is much better. I saw one review that thought the keyboard was flimsy. As far as I can tell, the Asus has no more flexibility in the keyboard than the Acer or Toshiba netbooks I looked at.
    - Windows 7 starter and Asus Utility. I saw a few reviews where people complained about Win7 Starter. Again, so far no problems with the OS, it does what it is intended to do. As far as the complaints about changing the background on the desktop, Asus was kind enough to provide a utility that makes changing the background very easy.
    - WLAN - since I bought the netbook, it has been in 6 locations that have wireless internet and it has jumped on the network easily each time regardless on encryption.

    A couple more thoughts on netbooks in general:
    - Netbooks are not desktop replacements or miniture laptops.

    Color Name: Black
    Intel has been gearing up to release the Atom N450 or "Pinetrail" since late last year. The manufacturers had a whole slew of netbooks ready for release between January 4 (when the big electronics show CES opened) and January 11 of 2010 (when it's ok to sell all the new Atom N450 based netbooks). Information was very scarce last year due to a press release embargo and probably the desire to sell of old-stock Atom N270/N280 netbooks.

    Here is an extremely useful, albeit technical, review of this particular Asus model AND of the Atom N450 on which it is based (if the link gets edited out by Amazon, go to anandtech and search for Asus 1005PE):


    Please note that Amazon already has a less expensive Asus, the 1001P, listed on the website, in two versions as well, a more expensive Win 7 Starter edition with 250 gb hard drive and a less expensive Win XP edition [edit: they now both have Win7 Starter, and the 1001p is now an anandtech editors choice - their current netbook favorite!] with 160 gb harddrive:

    ASUS Eee PC Seashell 1001P-PU17-BK 10.1-Inch Black Netbook - Up to 11 Hours of Battery Life

    ASUS Eee PC Seashell 1001P-MU17-BK 10.1-Inch Black Netbook - Up to 11 Hours of Battery Life

    The main difference is 3 extra hours of battery life, but there may be other feature differences such as wirless n and bluetooth support.

    I am thinking about getting the Win XP version of the 1001p which is quite a bargain.

    I wanted to wait to write this review until after the new iPad from Apple was released today to see how they compared. I'm glad I didn't wait to buy the 1005PE from Asus! So far I'm very happy with all of the same things the rest of the reviewers are happy with- and kinda bummed about the same things the others are bummed about. (Fingerprints)

    This netbook is basically an upgrade to my 32GB iPod Touch that sits on my bedside table. I used to use the Touch for web surfing and media viewing, but now I have this awesome little netbook that does everything the iPod Touch did for me, plus it has a ton more storage (250GB compared to 32GB) 13-ish hour battery life (compared to 3-5 on the Touch) and it supports Adobe's flash standard! (Something even the new iPad from Apple doesn't seem to do...) All in all, I'm very pleased with the 1005PE and have zero regrets following the unveiling of the new iPad from Apple today. I'm sure the 1005PE isn't a perfect replacement for the iPad to ALL users, but for me, I couldn't be happier with my purchase.

    One thing to note- as already reported- you want to get the 800 MHz RAM upgrade from Crucial, not the 667 MHz that Amazon lists on the 1005PE product page. I did the upgrade and noticed that things are even snappier- but the 1GB RAM module that came out of the 1005PE was 800 MHz memory- not 667 MHz...

    For the person who gave this netbook one star because he couldn't get greater than 1024 x 768 external VGA output while mirroring the internal monitor, that's pretty weak in my opinion. Considering all of the other features that this netbook provides for such little cost- I think this netbook is a real winner! Thanks for reading my review!
